    I love stockings and suspenders! Not only are they sexy they are comfortable. Being a plus size, rather tall lass I struggle with tights. They rarely fit me. Stockings and suspenders always fit and I don't feel like and over stuffed sausage. If I could wear them all the time but during the week I'm lucky if my hair is brushed and my shoes match! 😅

    I've worn stockings daily for years now, whether in a relationship or as a singleton. I find them more comfortable, practical and hygienic as well as being a bit more glam than tights (which I've always detested!) and a bit more reliable than hold ups.

    Unless you wear anything for work that is either too tight or too short, no-one will notice.

    My tips for daily wear are to buy belts with metal clasps (plastic ones can pop out) and preferably with at least 6 adjustable suspender straps (sorry Love Honey, your belts aren't great for daily wear). My preference is to wear my stockings as high as possible on my thigh and if I wear any skirts or dresses where my straps or clasps might just show through, I'll make sure I wear a slip or underskirt too.

    I've worn for years and the amount of people who have noticed, who I hadn't previously told, I could count on one finger!

    Life is so short to not enjoy it. Buy the pretty lingerie because it will make you feel fabulous. Since discovering lovehoney my confidence has quadrupled in myself.. and you look fabulous so embrace it. Get yourself some more pieces and flaunt it x

    Thanks everyone, I have ordered a couple more belts today from the 2 for £15 along with the DOTD to get the free delivery.

    Interesting point about having 6 straps and the metal clasps Bexy, that would feel much more secure and I think you are absolutely right about comfort and hygiene, I live in tight leggings usually and it can't be good for us.

    Also because of wearing leggings under dresses so often I hadn't realised how short most of my dresses were!

    Good for you

    Honestly you will look classy from a guys point of view. I am sure you will feel much better and confident .

    Just make sure your skirts or dresses are of an appropriate length if wearing stockings with them .Otherwise knotted tights or leggings would be more appropriate for normal everyday use.

    Giving your bf or partner a treat is another matter of course

    I got my other half into stockings and suspenders and she felt a bit uncomfortable in them at first but they're definitely growing on her. We went out for drinks a couple of weeks ago and she put them on with a skirt as she couldn't find her tights. She said they made her feel incredibly sexy (and she looked it) so will definitely be wearing them more often. I'm definitely not complaining!

    If it makes you feel sexy and helps with your confidence, what have you got to lose? Go for it!

    It's a great excuse for buying a new wardrobe for the summer AmyA!

    Make sure you buy decent quality stockings as well as you'll find that they're more durable. I always keep a spare pair in my bag whenever I'm out of the house.

    Oh, and if you really find you enjoy wearing them, you should look at getting some RHTs or fully fashioned stockings. They won't be sold on here but if you want a steer, send me a message and I'll let you know where is good to look.
